In the interest of maintaining as safe an environment as possible, we can only offer one shared room for our retreats. This is also because we think it would be unreasonable to expect our guests to be willing to share a room with someone they don’t know while the current situation persists.
The shared room can only be booked by people who book this room with one other person (so friends, couples or relatives). All the other five rooms can only be booked as a single room. All our rooms are en-suite rooms.
Shared double room, en-suite bathroom – Sharing with 1 other person – €310 p.p for the weekend. Single room, en-suite bathroom – €360 for the weekend.
We are all learning how to deal with the current circumstances.
It is very important to us that everyone feels safe and that you can enjoy your stay here without feeling nervous or anxious.
As HSE and Government guidelines are bound to change over the coming months, we will make sure to implement these changes as they occur.
We have taken all the necessary precautions so we would appreciate it if you take some time to read through them so that you know what to expect from us and what we would expect from you. In this way, we can all enjoy the peace and tranquillity that Mulvarra House offers.
We recommend you read our full guidelines here . This page also explains the thinking behind our policies, and above all, how we are approaching reopening as safely as possible.

Katie O’Byrne: I did my very first Yoga class 16 years ago, I didn’t know much about the practice, only that it made me feel good. For years Yoga was just something I did as a hobby every now and again. Almost 10 years ago it all started to change, slowly, so slowly I barely noticed my whole life being turned upside down. It was no coincidence that while all these changes were happening I had started a more dedicated yoga practice. Without noticing, everything I was learning on the mat, had started to seep out into my life. In 2016 I decided it was time for more change, so I decided to travel to Rishikesh Yog Peeth, in Northern India, where I received my Hatha Yoga Teaching Certificate, and I made a promise to myself to teach Yoga as a lifestyle, not just to teach Asana (Yoga Postures). I immediately started to share what I had learned by teaching classes, workshops and Retreats. Since my initial Yoga training I have also become a Reiki Master which has helped me to understand that we are not just a physical body, but we are also an energetic body, and keeping our energies balanced through Yoga & Reiki can keep us healthy and full of life.
In order to book one of the places on the retreat, you must go through the booking form and choose one of our accommodation options by clicking on the booking link at the bottom of this page. Please note that a 10% deposit must be paid in order to secure a place on the retreat. If you are unable to attend the retreat this deposit is refundable, and as long as you notify us within three weeks of the retreat, we will refund your deposit (less a 25 Euros cancellation fee to cover administration costs). However if the cancellation is inside 3 weeks of the start of the retreat, refunding of the deposit cannot be guaranteed, as it is contingent upon being able to fill your place on the retreat.
